tampa bay chamber of commerce says employers in this area are frustrated with the education system. he says there's no push for students to learn the trades, but it's imperative they do, as most of the current workforce in manufacturing is aging. he says the school system is just not teaching kids how to get their hands dirty. and up through the college level, students aren't thinking manufacturing as a career. we don't have the opportunity where kids are getting hands on on things and getting that curiosity and that mechanical interest to do stuff, we have a lack of interest in those hands on things and manufacturing is a hands on sport. they're not interested because they're not exposed to it, they don't know it's out there - they go through school and it's the basic lawyers and doctors, what are you gong to be, you gotta go to college, they don't realize there's a whole market out there in manufacturing. peck is trying to spark interest in manufacturing. he's not waiting on the government or the education system. he's taken it upon himself to recruit the right workers and personall

to urge the california department of education to reconsider its recent decision to change the way that child care resource and referral program divides the service areas in san francisco. in san francisco, we have diversity in languages, cultures and the two service providers in san francisco, children's council and children services have both served the entire city of san francisco for 40 years and have worked out the best system for this. a system that is culturally sensitive. we are deeply concerned that changing the service area to divide the service area by zip codes will create inefficiency to families and to children seeking services. we want to ensure that no one is turned away for living in a different zip code if they choose one service provider over another. therefore, this resolution today is to call on the california department of education to keep the current determination of the service areas so that we can continue having efficient access for all of our children and families and i want to thank supervisor far more co-sponsoring this resolution. the rest i submit. >
